Take the pledge
In addition to taking the pledge, your company can contribute to the fight for recovery in other ways. For example:
1. Educate your employees about the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse
Although most people have encountered addiction in some form or fashion during their life, many don’t understand the true nature of the problem.
2. Recognize the signs of addiction or substance abuse in the workplace
Understanding how to recognize the signs of serious alcohol and drug abuse can not just save your company money, it can save lives.
3. Address suspected abuse promptly and appropriately
Move the employee from handling any dangerous equipment immediately and address the issue with them in a private, sensitive manner.
4. Create a company policy for addiction treatment
Many people avoid seeking treatment because they are afraid of losing their job. Having a leave policy for treatment can help convince people to seek help.
